The museum will honour the designer’s pioneering work of the 60s and 70s in an upcoming exhibition
On Thursday, the V&A staged a “Quant revival” outside the museum to mark the launch of ticket sales for its upcoming retrospective of iconic fashion designer Mary Quant.
Models and staff who worked with Quant during the height of her fame in the 60s and 70s, as well as contemporary models, turned out for the event – many wearing Quant originals. Among them was 60s fashion model, photographer and long-time Quant fan Jill Kennington, who chose to wear a striped, woollen Quant dress for the occasion.
